Faces Of Ardtornish admin
For generations the same families have worked at Ardtornish, originally working the estate, its farms and gardens and looking after the owners and their family in the big house. Today, some of the same families still work here, helping to make Ardtornish a wonderful place for you to visit and enjoy a holiday to Scotland’s west coast.
Many of our visitors and guests come time and time again to Ardtornish and they often comment that the staff at Ardtornish help to make their stay special. Some guests have come to be close friends with the estate team after years of visiting their favourite cottage or apartment on the estate. To help you know who’s who, we thought we’d give you a little introduction to the “Faces of Ardtornish”.
